Default Got my K3, what's in the envelope ?

Hey,

I got my K3 Visa ( yay! ) and it arrived with a manilla envelope that I have to not open and give to immigration on arrival.

I'm now obsesed with this envelope and have locked it away so I don't open it in a drunken rage. I know that it's probably just copies of the information I've provided but it's driving me MAD Does anyone know what's in there for sure and what to expect when I land ? I'm a comin' on the 14th December.... WOW !

Out of interest, my experience at the london Embassy was really painless, just 2 visits to a window, a couple of questions and job done, even had my passport back via courier the next day.

Easy
Rich./

It's just all your paperwork pretty much, you hand it over and that's it...pretty painless

Don't forget the part about them x-raying your x-ray. If you ask them nicely they will bomb sniff it instead.

If you are really unlucky, you may had got the disgruntled employee who filled it full of a suspicious yellow powder.

Well, that's what I would have done anyway

Snap!

I got my manilla envelope last week too! It is too driving me mad.

I had a fairly painless interview too, just the 2 trips to the window over 30 mins inside the building and the visa arrived by courier the next day. I was at the London Consulate on Wednesday 15th November. When was yours? Did you have to wait outside in a queue for 2 hours too?
